Extra! Extra! Read all about it...The latest in candy news. The New York TImes reported this weekend that the Hershey bar has changed its packaging. Yes, folks, even Hershey has succumbed to the 21st century. Bummer. Here's what the article said:
"Gone is the foil wrapper. Also gone is the classic Gothic logo--replaced by fussy, beveled letters and an airbrushed sheen that would look at home on a Metallica T-shirt."
In other news, I have purchased the first batch of Halloween candy. I got a giant, mother-sized bag of "Jujyfruits and Friends." (The friends being Raspberry Dollars, formerly known as Red Hot Dollars, and some cherry and grape things.) Also got a bag of Junior Mints, although there's no way in hell they're going to last til Halloween. I had a little box of Jujyfruits and was happy to note that they replaced the formerly heinous mint-flavored green ones with tastier lime ones. Good call on their part.
